More About The Best in the World by Chris Jericho; Peter Thomas Fornatale
 
 
 
Overview
The New York Times bestselling author, wrestler, metal rocker, and over-the-top media personality shares his latest wild and hilarious adventures
World Wrestling Entertainment has named Chris Jericho as one of the top ten wrestlers and one of the top five talkers of all time. Certainly, the past six years have been spectacular for Jericho. After a sluggish return from his 2005 sabbatical, Jericho found new inspiration in watching No Country for Old Men and completely reinvented his character ultimately going on to capture three world WWE titles.
The Best in the World chronicles some of the incredible and often preposterous highlights of Jericho s recent career, including:
  • How Mickey Rourke challenged Jericho to a match, then backed out
  • Jericho s award-winning feud with Shawn Michaels, which culminated in Jericho knocking out Michael s wife in the ring . . . for real
  • His escape from the 2010 Icelandic volcanoes in a broken-down, European rental-car shuttle
  • His encounters with Bob Barker, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Al Sharpton, and Mike Tyson; and his on-again-off-again relationship with WWE chief Vince McMahon
Jericho has a one-of-a-kind comedic voice and a knack for getting himself into screwball situations both in and out of the ring. See for yourself why he is the best in the world."

World Wrestling Entertainment star Jericho (Undisputed) delivers the third chronicle of his unconventional life in and outside the ring, which should be a sure hit with his large fan base of "Jerichoholics." He recounts his life since 2007 when he returned to wrestling after his self-described "sabbatical," having left the WWE in 2005. Like his previous books, Jericho displays a keen understanding of the realities of being a character in the tightly-scripted wrestling world: "the second time you were made champion was the proof that you really deserved it and could make the company money by holding it." He offers an inside look at how wrestlers change their images to stay popular, as he details how he switched roles from his nice-guy persona to that of "the ultimate heel with no redeeming qualities," based on the villain played by Javier Bardem in the film "No Country for Old Men." Jericho also describes his encounters with the likes of Mickey Rourke, Metallica, and Bob Barker, as well as a long look at life on the road with his heavy metal band Fozzy. Overall, however, the book lacks the fast-pace of his earlier efforts; many of the stories sound like repeats of past exploits. (Oct.)
